Sometimes Marc Maron's WTF Podcast is great, but only if I already like the guest and Maron's not being whiny that day.

Thanks guys!

Pete Holmes was on Todd Glass a few weeks ago and the whole show is just one wild improv after another. Both guys so totally silly and playful.

IDK if it's a podcast per se, but I like Mike Rowe's The Way I Heard It.

I need people to talk quietly so I can fall asleep. But then, not auto-play.

How do I do podcasts? I have an LG v30 running Android.

Undertoad 05-24-2018 05:46 PM

I use an app called Pocket Casts. It was just bought by NPR and This American Life:

The reason I use it is because it has both a desktop and mobile version - and when you are lucky, they sync. So if you get to minute 39 on the drive home, and start your home desktop up with the same cast, it will start at minute 39.

Griff 05-25-2018 07:39 AM

I'm using the same one. It seems to make sense.

I'm listening to a series on the space race on American Tellers. They got into the US falling behind by not wanting von Braun to lead because of his WWII baggage and some high level military industrial complex bribery. Turns out Ike wasn't reading tea leaves, it happened on his watch.

The History of Rome podcast is quite good, I guess I can go into his archives. Dude read the first chapter of his book The Storm before the Storm. We were always comparing the US and Rome back in college... humans behave as humans behave.

Ya put that fucker in a drawer and put the radio on a talk station* just barely loud enough to tell someone's talking, but, not quite understand them.

*Preferably something you couldn't give a shit about.

Yabbut if you share your bed with another person, the radio isn't going to be a popular choice.

When I need to distract my brain enough to fall asleep, I listen to one of my favorite audiobooks through earbuds (one earbud, technically, because I'm lying on my side.) Audible doesn't have an auto-stop feature that I'm aware of, but yanking the earbud from the phone jack will do it, so at some point in the night I'll surface just long enough to reach over and disconnect it.

Hi Clodfobble

My Audible app has a sleep timer function. Perhaps you can put this to good use.
